Re: Discussion on Thelema: RHP or LHP? Definitely LHP. I can see the argument there, that it is RHP, but in my opinion, a religion or philosophy does not have to strive to destroy social barriers via transgressive acts to qualify as Left Hand Path. The path isn't really about transgression as much as it is a quest for self improvement and a more self-centric form of Enlightenment.

Re: Consciousness as the Field that Connects Brain to Form I think that makes sense. We have our instinctual driven, pre-programmed Lesser Mind, our Conscious Mind, and our Greater Mind, or highest representation of the self. Obviously, sentience is intermediate between the two, that is pretty much given, but it seems like in the physical world (Midgard in my system of theology), is navigable simply by our instincts. Our drive to eat, stay alive, and procreate is sufficient. However, in order to connect our mind to the spiritual, we need consciousness.

I think this song represents the hidden power our thoughts have.

Re: The Book of Coming Forth by Night "Re-consecrate my Temple and my Order in the true Name of Set.  No longer will I accept the bastard title of a Hebrew fiend."

I found that particular line to be very powerful. I don't consider myself a Setian, but I believe that Set exists, possibly as a synonym for ├żorr or Odin, or maybe as a personification of their combined forces.

Re: The Comprehensive Argument for Set The Theory of Forms makes a lot of sense to me now. For example, let's say that our force of consciousness stems from an undefined source and radiates outward. Therefore, it is constantly being replaced by new energy. Even though the material energy is not the same, the "force" is consistently the same by virtue of character being the same. That is sort of where the term "essence" comes in. The essence is the nature seperated from the material.

I think that Set does fit as a personification of the giver of the Black Flame, however, I believe that this applies to many other gods, especially Odin, as well as other proto-Satanic gods such as Ea. I use Odin as the official name, however, "Satan" and "Set" can be used as titles in alternate contexts, e.g a dedication ritual.

Re: The Book of Coming Forth by Night
For me and others the differing semblances of Set, Satan, Odin/Wotan, Lucifer, Prometheus, etc., are daimonic reflections of the manifold aspects and machinations of That which is commonly known as the Prince of Darkness, the Great Benefactor of Mankind, the primordial source of our heightened Sense of Self and advanced intellect.

I am a polytheist, and while I think that all gods, Daimons, Alfs, and spirits exist independently, they are at the same time aspects of a greater force. I think that some are aspects of a darker side, and others of a lighter side.

Re: The Comprehensive Argument for Set ^^^^

I think that the force of the "Black Flame" or Greater Mind is both a kind of form as well as a kind of physical energy. It may well be a channel used to connect Form and Matter, that isn't too far fetched.

Re: Love I think that love is a very deep emotion, present at the core of one's psyche. This means that does not always manifest itself in one's overlying emotions and actions. With, say, a family member, one will always feel love and kinship for them, however, the love can be suppressed by temporary hate, anger, or frustration. Regardless, it's always present.

Re: Satanic Creationism I am not a a "creationist" by typical standards. My theory on the origin of existence is complex, and it would be hard to place into words, however, I will say that the gods created existence and existence created the gods. This sort of creates a paradoxical loop, and could explain why existence is temporally indefinite. As far as evolution goes, I am going to say that I agree with the theory as there don't seem to be any logical alternatives. That said, I could potentially disprove it by saying that mutations are usually recessive, making it hard for them to actually have an affect on the gene pool. I am not very educated in genetics, so I will side with evolution as being true.

I have heard from some Satanists that they believe that Yahweh created the cosmos as sort of a prison, and Satan is the liberator who is somehow trying to free the universe from Form. I know little about the the MLO's theology, the this seems pretty in line with their Chaosophy. I used to have beliefs regarding Chaos as a sacred realms of sort, but I've more or less developed a new understanding of this.
